The Staff of Antonidas

The Staff of Antonidas is an ornate wooden staff formerly wielded by Archmage Antonidas. He gifted it to his most promising apprentice, Lady Jaina Proudmoore.[1]

Background

Mists of Pandaria

Mists of Pandaria This section concerns content related to Mists of Pandaria.

In the aftermath of Lei Shen's defeat, Jaina tasked Alliance champions to charge the Staff of Antonidas with the remains of the Thunder King's power. After its transformation, the staff was renamed to the  [Storm-Stave of Antonidas]. Jaina claimed that when the time was right, she would use the staff to bring the walls of Orgrimmar crashing down around Garrosh Hellscream's head,[2] but no such thing is known to have happened.

Speculation

Questionmark-medium.png
This article or section includes speculation, observations or opinions possibly supported by lore or by Blizzard officials. It should not be taken as representing official lore.

In Jaina: Reunion, the Staff of Antonidas was last seen in the panels set in the past, where she stood in the Violet Citadel, leaving the Kirin Tor during the third invasion of the Burning Legion, resting on furniture. In the present, Jaina's staff has a blue crystal. It is possible that she either left her staff behind and wields a new one, or her staff's appearance changed between Legion and Battle for Azeroth.

  • Since Battle for Azeroth, the model of Jaina's weapon has been updated in her past appearances as well, for example in the Siege of Orgrimmar or Theramore, which may indicate that they are the same weapons and that the appearance was just retroactively changed.
